Mark Cuban says American households need $1,000 bi-weekly stimulus checks for two months


Marr reiterated that he supports Cuban’s point that “additional stimulus payments” are necessary “on top of substantial unemployment and nutrition support.” He noted, “That combination of unemployment insurance and the stimulus checks in the spring and summer was very effective. It kept support for low- and middle-income people.”

Right now, Congress is at a standstill on the issue of providing another stimulus package for Americans. The House passed a $3 trillion stimulus bill in May but the Senate rejected it.

Earlier this month, the Senate Republican tried to advance stimulus legislation worth $500 billion but failed to get enough votes to move towards final passage. House Democrats will surely reject a skinny plan to avert the economic crisis while the COVID-19 pandemic is still far from over.
